People in Litchfield County are preparing for their biggest snowstorm in nearly two years.
The Torrington Street Department says its dozens of trucks are ready to go for this big storm starting early Tuesday into Wednesday.
City trucks in Torrington Monday were loading up with sand and salt. Some trucks were already on the road pretreating.
People in Litchfield County are no strangers to huge snowstorms, but there are serious concerns with this one - such as the possibility of power outages and the possibility of trees coming down that could trap some people.
Torrington is expecting to see about 1 ½ feet of snow, which could cause delays on the roads.
"We might be a little bit delayed in the timeliness on how fast we can respond depending on the conditions of the roadways, but we will be there in the community. Safety is obviously our main priority," said Torrington Police Lt. Brett Johnson.
Torrington police have this advice for people in their city.
"Power up your devices should we lose power, have water on supply," said Johnson.
Torrington is expecting to issue a parking ban after midnight Tuesday until 7 a.m. Wednesday.
Police say do everything you can to stay safe and be prepared for this storm and check on your neighbors.
